It's Captain Howdy time.

"Human Touch (Remix)" - Rick Springfield

It's everybody's other favorite Springfield (Long live Homer & Co.), Rick. Don't call him Bruce. The year is 1983 and Aussie-born Springfield launches the last of his deep-space probes. In a freak mishap, Ranger 3 and it's pilot, Captain William "Buck", sorry. Rick dropped his 7th album, "Living In Oz" in '83. It was also one of the very first vinyl albums I ever bought at the age of 11. This song was a top-20 hit the same year and this remix is done by extraordinaire John Luongo, who's also done mixes for Don Henley, Bryan Adams, John Waite (The "Missing You" mix I posted recently) and Huey Lewis & The News. Edited for the single and stretched for the 12" promo. Running time: 7:15. D'oh!: Rick Springfield once lived and had a relationship with 15 year old Linda Blair (The Exorcist). He was 25 at the time.

Be silent!
